Sometimes you just need something easy, light, and refreshing, especially in the midst of this seemingly unending summer heat wave.

This sparkling grapefruit zinger kicks the fancy factor up a notch with snazzy basil, peach, & lime ice cubes. Feeling really fancy? Make it a cocktail instead.

These ice cubes will add fun & pizazz to any summer beverage, but I especially love them paired with the crisp flavor of the grapefruit juice.

Love this! And it is the perfect use for my ice cube trays when I’m not using them for baby food.
